Diallo gets loan from Rangers
Manchester United’s Amad Diallo has joined Scottish Premier League champions Rangers until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old Ivory Coast winger has made just nine first-team appearances since joining the club in a £37m move from Italian side Atalanta a year ago.
Diallo said: “I am delighted to join Rangers until the end of the season.
“It’s fantastic for me at this stage of my career to have the opportunity to come to such a big club which is challenging on many fronts and will give me great opportunities to test myself in so many environments.
“I’m looking forward to training with my teammates for the first time tomorrow and meeting the fans for the first time at Ross County on Saturday.”
Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst currently has Rangers top of the league and is delighted to complete the move for the teenager who still has just 17 first-team appearances in his career for Atalanta, United and Côte d’Ivoire together.
Van Bronchhorst said: “I’m really excited to add Amad to our team for the rest of the season.
“He’s a player I’ve known for a while, and when the opportunity to sign him came up, we were very keen to make it happen.
“He will add a lot to our squad and provide even more competition for the players in the frontcourts.”
There is no option for the player to be bought at the end of the loan term, with United still considering the winger as one for the future.
He made just one first-team appearance this season in United’s last Champions League group game as the team had already progressed to the knockout stages.
